Golden State Warriors PG/SF Draymond Green will rest Friday night vs. the Utah Jazz. The Warriors aren’t on the second of a back-to-back, but Green will take a seat to pick up some rest, something that should happen frequently throughout a lost season for the Dubs. Green is coming off a triple-double against the New York Knicks the other night with 14 points 10 rebounds and 12 assists. It’s just the second for Green this season, tough to reach a triple-double without Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson in the lineup.

Fantasy Basketball Analysis: Golden State Warriors PG/SF Draymond Green

So with Green sidelined, the clear benefactor should be D’Angelo Russell, who will have the ball in his hands most of the game. This is when he usually thrives in fantasy basketball, chucking a ton of shots like he’s Kobe Bryant in the mid-2000s. At $7,700, D’Lo is a great tournament play on DraftKings. Glenn Robinson ($4,500) and Willie Cauley-Stein ($4,500) are also great values with Eric Paschall (hip) doubtful to play.
